VERITAS University, Abuja (VUNA), is the Catholic University of Nigeria, founded by the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria through a resolution given at its March 2002 meeting in Abuja.
The initiative came from the Bishops’ quest for a University that would provide high quality tertiary education according to the noble tradition of the Catholic Church.
A provisional License to operate the University was granted by the National Universities Commission in May 2007.
The permanent site of the University is located in Bwari, Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
However, the University commenced admission of students in October 2008, for the 2008/2009 academic year at its take-off campus in Obehie Town, Abia State, Nigeria.
